1969 Rally Sport Double COPO Camaro



Besides have the 427/425hp engine, it also has COPO 9737 Yenko Sport Car Conversion option, consisting of E70X15 tires on Rally wheels, a 140 mph speedometer and a 1 inch stabilizer. And the endura bumper. Not many of these were made. The other two I am familiar with are:

1970 440+6 Dodge Coronet R/T Convertible (1 of 16*)

7 - 4 SPD
9 - AUTO


440+6 Production Numbers (Dodge & Plymouth):

It is interesting to note that Dodge used no engine callout emblems on the 1970 Coronet R/T. If you didn't order the Ram Air, there were no emblems at all. If you ordered the Ram Air it would have "440" emblems on the Hood Scoops - either for the standard 440 Magnum . . . or . . . the 440+6.

1970 Hemi Charger R/T



Quote:
So when you can call a car "one of one" with just a few words, and they're a few words from the top of the fender tag, then you're getting somewhere. They're good words: Hemi. Four-speed. Triple black. And that's it--Dodge only built one triple-black four-speed 1970 Hemi Charger R/T.

One-off front-wheel-drive Olds 4-4-2 heading to MCACN*



Quote:
It’s human nature to want what we can’t have. While those weaned on a steady diet of front-engine, rear-wheel-drive cars lament the proliferation of front-wheel drive, there was a time when front-drive was seen as potentially advantageous in a performance car. To test this theory, George Hurst commissioned the build of a special 1968 Oldsmobile 4-4-2, one fitted with the larger V-8 and front-wheel drive of the Oldsmobile Toronado. Now in restored form, the car will make its show debut at the upcoming Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals. . .

1969 R Code 428 CJ Mustang Coupe, Auto




Quote:
This stunning Silver Jade 1969 Mustang was born on March 25th, 1969, in the Dearborn Ford Assembly Plant and is truly a one-of-a-kind car. It recently underwent a complete rotisserie restoration that was completed this year. According to the Marti Report, this is the only ’69 Mustang Coupe built with this set of unique options: Silver Jade code 4 paint, 428-4V Ram-Air Code R V8, C-6 Cruise-O-Matic Transmission, and Black Knitted Vinyl Bench Seat. Other factory-installed options include air conditioning, AM radio, rear seat speaker, competition suspension, and F70x14 White Letter Tires. This Pony was originally sold new on April 7th, 1969, to a gentleman in Huntington Beach, CA, and it stayed in the family until the mid-’90s. The car also comes with a plethora of documentation, which includes: a deluxe Marti Report, original buyer’s order, and original Ford owner warranty card.

1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302 - One For The Shows

Tim Orick’s 1970 Boss 302 was one of 14 early-production cars built for the Ford dealer intro shows

Quote:
The 14 Boss 302s were nearly identical, all well-equipped with rear spoiler, rear window slats, tachometer, power steering, tilt steering column, and the Convenience Group, although Marti notes that one car had a console instead of tilt steering. Nine were equipped with the 3.91:1 rear axle.

These early-production Boss 302s were also linked by several exterior variances from later and more typical Boss 302s. Most noticeable was the stripe placement on the rear quarter panels—instead of running below the side marker lights, the stripes angled upward and into the marker lights. They were also equipped with the standard chrome taillight housings and stainless rear window molding instead of blackout, along with chrome trim on the taillight panel that was actually from the Mach 1 but without the honeycomb insert. Based on magazine photos of 100056, the engines were equipped with the early production chrome valve covers, similar to 1969, as opposed to the later and more common '70 aluminum covers.

1967 Mercury Cyclone R-Code 427 CI, 1 of 19 Produced



Quote:
At the same time Ford was using its W- and R-code 427 Fairlanes to blast the competition in Stock and Super Stock drag racing, Lincoln-Mercury was grabbing Top Stock Eliminator titles and setting class records of their own with their low-production Cyclones. The R-code 427 CI V-8 was a masterpiece of design. Based on the FE big block, it used cross-bolted main bearing journal caps, forged rotating assembly with 11:1 forged aluminum pistons, a flat-tappet solid lifter cam, special new “medium riser” heads, so named as they were a compromise – an exceptionally good one, as it happened – between the low-profile early 427 heads and the high-port heads used in the Thunderbolt racers. Using the same light-alloy valves as the “high riser” heads, the R-code engine was topped with a well-designed aluminum intake manifold mounting dual inline Holley 4-barrel carburetors. Race-prepared 427 Cyclones easily reached down into 11-second quarter mile times; on the street, their factory rating of 425 HP made them a force to be reckoned with. 50 427 Medium Riser-equipped Comets were built, including 202, Capri and Caliente models and 19 R-code Cyclone hardtop coupes, one of which is offered here in beautiful restored condition. Incorporating a heavy duty Toploader 4-speed and 9-inch rear end, this 1967 R-code 427 Cyclone 2-door hardtop presents in the classic factory configuration of White with a Red interior fitted with bucket seats. Radio and heater are factory deletes, and the car uses the optional fiberglass hood with dual intake scoops and rides on period-correct chromed steel wheels with Blackwall tires. Documentation includes a Marti Report.
